Classic Motorsports Car Catcher: Project DeLorean

Don’t lie, even if you weren’t a fan of a particular ‘80s film, you’ve always secretly wanted a DeLorean, haven’t you? Well here’s your chance. Beverly Hills Car Club is selling a 1981 model for $15,750. It comes with a manual transmission and it actually doesn’t look unbearably rough.

I'm almost thinking a free-range Europa would be a better value proposition than this.

As reviled as BHCC is in some circles, it is impossible to deny they have very interesting inventory. Their ability to find and acquire ratty but cool cars (probably cheap) is enviable.

I have been there and while no where near Beverly Hills, they do have a lot of our kind of stuff. Definitely worth the trip, if you are in So-Cal.

Honestly? That's not too bad of a deal. The general assumption in the DMC-12 community is that no matter what you'll eventually end up paying $25k for a good, solid running car, and unless this one's PRV is a complete basketcase I don't see it costing $10k to get to decent shape.

The only real damage I see is the passenger front fender- just be VERY VERY glad it's that side and not the driver's side fender which is worth more than its weight in gold. The frame rust honestly looks better than mine though it would need to be addressed down the line. Seats don't look too bad- replacement covers can be gotten for a decent price. I'd guess there's about $5k (assuming the K-Jet has lots of parts that need to be replaced after it sat for a long time) of parts that would be needed to get it overhauled and on the road turning heads.
